In our previous issue, we discuss aboutrepparttar properties of lubricating oil and what to look for when buying or replacing them. Ezine Article

Today, we want to find out as to when to replacerepparttar 102784 lubricating oil. If you have a large quantity of lubricating oil to change, it is going to burn a hole in your pocket. So most plant operators try to preserverepparttar 102785 properties ofrepparttar 102786 lubricating oil for as long as possible.

One ofrepparttar 102787 most important functions of lubricating oil is to reducerepparttar 102788 friction betweenrepparttar 102789 moving parts of machinery. But there are other features to look at.

When do you know thatrepparttar 102790 oil needs to be changed? Below is a rough guide: 1. Viscosity has changed by 10% 2. Flash Point has dropped to 150 degree Celsius 3. Water Content has reached 2% 4. TBN, or Total Base Number has reduced by 20% 5. Insoluble Content has increased to 5% ofrepparttar 102791 oil

Due torepparttar 102792 oxidation ofrepparttar 102793 oil when exposed to heat and oxygen, repparttar 102794 viscosity ofrepparttar 102795 oil tend to reduce. Withrepparttar 102796 reduction of viscosity,repparttar 102797 film of oil between rubbing metal surfaces becomes more difficult to maintain. This results in metal to metal contact, micro seizures that leads to scuffing, abrasion and other damages.

In large diesel engines, fuel oil from dripping injectors or fuel pumps sometimes finds their way intorepparttar 102798 lubrication oil sump. This hasrepparttar 102799 tendency to reducerepparttar 102800 flash point ofrepparttar 102801 lubricating oil.

If there is a hotspot in any ofrepparttar 102803 rubbing parts, this can lead to a crankcase explosion.

Water can also find its way intorepparttar 102804 lubricating oil from leaks inrepparttar 102805 cooling water system o-rings or gaskets.
